📚Review: Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club by Michelle Mankin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wasn’t like them. What I did was different. I didn’t take only what was meted out to me. I decided who and when and how. I wasn’t encouraging promiscuity. I was promoting personal choice. No one should be judged for their preferences, whether you were a rap duo into threesomes or a drummer who preferred to be in charge.

The moment I read the blurb for Rock F*ck Club, I immediately added it to my TBR. It gave me thrill to see that the character was going to turn the tables and reclaim her control by doing what men do all the time, without judgement. But nothing could have prepared me for what this story actually delivered. There’s no way I could have predicted the direction this story takes or how it would have left me feeling when I made it to the end.

Michelle Mankin wrote a story that touched on feminism, strength, independence, sexual adventure and self-discovery. Raven Winters’ journey took me on an incredible adventure. What started out as a way to get back at her cheating boyfriend turned into a viral movement that nearly spins out of control yet puts Raven on the path she was meant to take.

Rock F*ck Club was filled with lessons learned, love, passion, friendship, family and growth. I’m still a bit numb from the story…only because I can’t exactly put into words how I feel right now. But it left me with a sense of freedom, elation and peace. Kind of how I’d like to think Raven would feel if she was three dimentional.

I’m not going to go into any detail regarding the road Raven travels, becuase I truly think you should experience it for yourself. But don’t be deterred by the percieved premise of this story. I’m sure, like I did, you’re thinking it might be a raunchy yet fun rockstar romance like others out there but it wasn’t anything like that. YET, there is still plenty of heat and steam to keep your sheets warm and panties damp. I definitely recommend this book!!

FAVORITE QUOTES:
“From this day I voe to be uptight no longer. I’m going to ‘Kumbaya’ and give into my wild side, and you’re going to document it. It’s time to shake things up. It’s time for a new way of doing things. It’s time for women to be the ones in control.”

“Please think carefully before you make your choices. Sometimes control isn’t all it seems to be. Sometimes it’s just a matter of knowing who you can trust to get you safely home again.”

Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. His eyes beamed like twin spotlights exposing all my deepest darkest secrets.

“Raven,” he made my name a puff of air before he pressed his lips to mine and set my entire f*cking world on fire. Cold to combustible. Ice to Inferno. A blaze that he stoked as he moved his mouth persuasively over mine. Clinging to him, my hands over his, I decided that all the kisses I’d had before had been executed by amateurs.

An emptiness inside of me longed to be filled. To be taken. To surrender to this madness between us, and let it consume us both.

“Mark me.” I lowered myself to my knees on the carpet watching him in the window. He stood behind me like some kind of primordial god.

📚Review Spotlight of JADED HEARTS (Loaded Replay #1) by Harper Sloan

todays spotlight read
jadedhearts_frontcover_loresJaded Hearts by Harper Sloan
Loaded Replay #1
Release Date: December 13, 2016

ABOUT THE BOOK
Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world.
It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.
Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.
Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.
Happiness…that feeling is a joke.
In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.

Jaded Hearts will kick off the Loaded Replay series – which will be a series of interconnected standalones. The cast and crew of Jaded Hearts was introduced to us for the first time briefly in Unexpected Fate. You do not need to read that book in order to fully enjoy Jaded Hearts. Happy reading!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

1-im-wrenlee-d-final

Jaded Hearts was a wonderful start to Harper Sloan’s new series, Loaded Replay. An alpha security expert and a fiery, feisty rockstar… What more could I ask for??

Jaded Hearts captivated me the moment I read the Prologue. By the time I began Chapter One, I knew what I needed to know to start the journey Penelope was about to embark on.

modernrock_loresWrenlee Davenport is the pixie lead singer of Loaded Replay, the band that is filling up stadiums around the world and only growing bigger in popularity with the masses. With her twin brother, Weston, and their two long time friends, Luke and Jamison, she makes music and lives life on the road touring and performing the music they love. But she’s reached a point that no matter how many people she’s surrounded by, she’s still lonely. The allure of he state and audience no longer holds that sparkle and rush she loved so much. But when her very protective and loving brother Wes, brings on extra security, Chance Nash brings about what is missing her life to bring that all back.
2-insane-life
Chance was introduced to us in the Home Town series as Cohen’s roommate and best friend. With Jaded Hearts, he gets his chance at love. A former special ops marine, he was hired into Corps Security back in Atlanta. Guilt from failure, in his eyes, he jumps at the chance to take on a job that will take him out of town and away for some change in his life. And the moment he steps into the same room as Wren, that change is evident and strong.

I loved Wren’s feisty boldness. She was so adorably cute and loved by her brother and band mates. She was humble and funny and was exactly what Chance needed to counteract his rough, military edges. There was a definite transformation from his first appearance to the ending but never lost his alpha tendencies and extreme protectiveness.3-chance

Jaded Hearts was a GREAT start to a new series and Harper Sloan has always been one of my automatic oneclicks. She fails to disappoint in her storytelling abilities and Chance and Wren are just two more characters I have fallen in love with. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Review Spotlight: MANAGED (VIP #2) by Kristen Callihan

todays spotlight read managed-banner review logo ✯✯✯✯✯

Managed in the 2nd book in the VIP series. Though it can be read as a standalone, it’s much more pleasurable to read it after VIP. This way you get to know the other characters and meet/see Scottie how everyone else sees him. This is what made this story that much more enjoyable for me. Because having met him previously and seeing him in is own story is a HUGE contrast and it’s an absolute treat.

I freaking loved Gabriel Scott and Sophie Darling. They were the perfect pair. TOTAL opposites which added to their tension, angst and the whole of this story. Sophie was so carefree, sassy, spunky and sarcastic. She already had me laughing out loud 3 percent into the story. Not knowing anything about Scottie, she gave him a hard time and teased him for his stuffy, snobby persona and it was hilarious. She even caught Scottie off guard. The stuff that comes out of her mouth leaves him speechless on more than one occasion.

And Scottie turned out to be someone so much different than what I expected. Things really ran quite deep with him. Layers and layers that Sophie was able to wiggle her way through without even trying and she did it effortlessly by just being herself. He teasing and wit just broke through and opened him up to let loose. I loved it.

I had never read a Kristen Callahan book before opening VIP and then Managed; and both books have made me a fan. Her writing was amazing and the characters she put on paper had so much personality and life. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about any of them. They were relateable, likeable and funny. I can’t wait to get my hands on more of this series as it comes. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the guys of Kill John have their stories told too. I’m really hoping for a match up between Brenna and Rye. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for that one.

ABOUT THE BOOK
It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against Him: the sexy bastard with a big…ego.

I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.

That is until HE sat down next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He’s a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me.

I thought I’d give him hell for one, long flight. I didn’t expect to like him. I didn’t expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn’t see coming.

If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can’t manage. But I’m tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.

Let the battle begin…

Review Spotlight w/Giveaway: TEMPTING TEMPO (Tempest #5) by Michelle Mankin

review logo

4.5 STARS

Another wonderful story for the Tempest band mates. Sager is definitely my favorite. He was always the strong silent type when he appeared in the previous novels, and that remained true here. But when he speaks, he’s almost poetic. He speaks truth and wisdom. Having grown up in a family with a bad and violent reputation, it’s surprising what a gentle person he is. His heart is so big and pure. He still has a temper, but he keeps it under control when he’s not using it to his advantage when it’s needed.tempting-tempo-teaser-use

The brotherly bond he has for King and the loyalty he has for their friendship as well as for the band is so strong. Having known what it’s like to not have a family, he doesn’t take the closeness the band has for granted. And what he feels for Melinda is something he will hold on to and fight for. Even if Melinda is the one to get in their way. He sees her in a light that no one else does, not even her, and will do whatever it takes so that they do.

I loved him. He was dreamy and deep and sexy and kind hearted and talented. Not only was he a talented musician but an amazing artist. And I don’t think Melinda deserved him. She already left a bad taste in my mouth after what she did during April and Dizzy’s story. I came in to this book not liking her one bit. It took a while for me to warm up to the idea of her, but I saw her growth. Over time, she began to mature and since I can live within the pages of this book, I’ll let her have him.

tempting-fateI understand her now. Had she not gotten this story, I wouldn’t have. She’s spent her whole life seeking approval. Her dad wasn’t the most loving parent and she did the things she did to get the attention she so desperately wanted. Sager was the one to help her see what she couldn’t. And Mary Timmons, the record label exec? She’s an enigma. She gets beat for her heavy handedness but she’s so much more than what she portrays. I’m hoping that eventually she gets her own happy ending. She deserves one.

This was a great story and has taken the spot of favorite in this series.

ABOUT THE BOOK
From NYT & USA Today bestselling author comes a new Bleeding Stars stand-alone novel…

She is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go.

Edie Evans is gorgeous.
Sexy.
Kind.
She’s also the definition of off-limits.
But that didn’t stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night.
But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too.
The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again.

Austin Stone is dangerous.
Alluring.
Tempting.
He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again.
It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him.
Our desire is overpowering.
Our need unrelenting.

She is my hope.
He is my weakness.
We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground.

ABOUT THE BOOK

AN AMBITIOUS BOMBSHELL IS ABOUT TO BRING THE KING OF WALL STREET TO HIS KNEES.

I keep my two worlds separate.
At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless.
At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his fourteen year old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.
When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with.
I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier—it makes my mouth water.
I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job—it makes my dick twitch.
And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk and trail my tongue all over her body.
If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don’t just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too.

ABOUT THE BOOK
He’s so arrogant.

She’s so self-righteous.

I can’t stand him.

I want her.

He’s a distraction I don’t need.

She’ll say yes eventually because I’m not giving up.

Justine Porter is stuck between a rock and a stripper pole. She lost her law school scholarship, which means she has two choices to keep her life on track: strip for her tuition or tutor the most distractingly sexy guy in her class—the one she’s been turning down for two years straight. It should be an easy choice, but tutoring Ryker Grant could derail her plans to graduate with honors faster than two-for-one night at the Déjà Vu. Then again, topless has never really been her color.

She could take the easy road, just this once … but the deal has enough loopholes to trip anyone up.

Who knew they taught bad judgment in law school?

ABOUT THE BOOK

Reagan
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.

Jude
Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

ABOUT THE BOOK
“Money. Fame. Success. I had it all. And now I have nothing. No band. No contract. I’m roughing it with the commoners, and I have no idea what the fuck I’m doing.”

Reece Ashton is used to living the dizzying heights of being a celebrity, until his only other band member leaves just as they were about to embark on a world tour. Sold out shows, groupies, and living the high life are long forgotten as he has to learn to fend for himself while living in suburbia. Hiding out in the tiny town of Portmouthe, England is as about as far away from the spotlight as possible. He doesn’t want to be there, but he’s got nothing but time on his hands now that he’s been left high and dry by his band mate. No job, limited money and no life skills – he’s completely out of his element. No one in town knows he’s there except one girl who keeps his secret. Falling in love was never part of his comeback plan.

Madelyn Arnett knows all too well what it’s like to be on the wrong end of the paparazzi. She’s quietly rebuilding her life in the sleepy town of Portmouthe away from the prying eyes of trash media when the most famous musician on earth ends up in her workplace. Worried that when the media comes hunting for him, they will find her and she’s worked too hard to let some spoiled little rock star take her life away from her. But this helpless rock star is in need of a friend. Turns out, she’s the only person on the planet to truly know the real Reece Ashton. Fighting to not fall in love, she knows their time is fleeting as the glare of the spotlight comes hunting for Reece.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto— play women’s bodies like he does the strings of his guitar— hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.

He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there’s so much more to him than anyone really knows…

Now that he’s successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who’s ever held his heart. The only thing is…will he really want to know the truth?

When Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Shepard finds herself in a situation she’s been in too many times before, she expects to do what she’s always done— cover it up, accept the apologies, and move on. She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn’t expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.

When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music… with his heart?

divider line naughty mom review ✯✯✯✯✯

WOW! Going into Tanner’s story, I had no idea it was going to be as powerful as it was. I’m a fan of the series and wanted to read it because I love the characters so I didn’t really pay much attention to the synopsis when I added it to my TBR. The content of this story was so much more than I expected from a rockstar romance. Hartstrings can be read as a standalone, but the series is MUCH better if read in order.

When I was introduced to Tanner, I saw what his band mates did. He was the “player” of the band. He had girls available any and everywhere and loved the reputation he built. That reputation was his wall to protect him from the life he came from. A secret no one knew.

When he stumbles across Mackenzie, he finds himself reliving the life he left behind and tries his hardest to do for Mac that he couldn’t do then. He becomes her “knight in shining armor.” But Mackenzie tries to keep her distance. Not just for her but for Tanner’s safety as well.

Gosh, it’s hard to articulate what I got out of this story and not give it all away. It’s touches on such an important and serious topic in such a way that I empathized with them both within the deepest part of my soul. Hartstrings is one of those stories that stays with you. It’s a story that delivers a powerful love, a bit of suspense and an important message about strength and survival.
